We offer two different tools for cutting joints in laminate: Do you need the Underscribe or Seaming

When using the Underscribe Router both pieces of laminate are glued in place with one over-lapping the
other. The Underscribe guides off the bottom piece and cuts the over-lapping piece for a perfect fit.

When using the Seaming Router both pieces of laminate cannot be glued in place, one piece may be
glued and the other clamped, or both pieces are clamped in place with one piece over-lapping the other.
The Seaming Router cuts both pieces of laminate at the same time, leaving an 1/8” gap between the
pieces after cutting so one piece must be re-positioned.

Versatile - Cuts all plastic laminates for all types of joints in store fixtures, face frames, cabinets, circular bands, and anywhere else you need to have a perfect joint.  Also works great on wood veneer and aluminum laminates with the use of a spiral down cut bit.
